From the best-selling author of Seven Brief Lessons on Physics comes a new audiobook about the mind-bending nature of the universe. What are time and space made of? Where does matter come from? And what exactly is reality? Scientist Carlo Rovelli has spent his whole life exploring these questions and pushing the boundaries of what we know. Here he explains how our image of the world has changed throughout centuries.

This book is not only a mesmerising account of both the story and world of physics (that somehow manages to be both eloquently worded and yet still simple enough for a person of average intelligence to grasp) but is also read with all the passion and character I can imagine Rovelli penning it with.
